Solutions Marketplace: Join the open call for innovation in fundraising. Register your fundraising solution, product, or technology, whether you are a startup, agency, NGO, academic institution, fundraiser, or individual, at reimaginingfundraising.org. Marketplace opens on May 30, 2022. If you participated in the first Reimagining in 2020, please update your submission with your progress and results.
Solutions Matchmaking: To inspire innovative fundraising solutions, the leading NGOs who founded Reimagining Fundraising have listed the challenges they want to solve – ranging from how to acquire younger donors to how to retain donors acquired in emergencies like Covid and Ukraine. The Solutions Matchmaking phase will connect NGOs with innovative proposals that can help solve their problems. Radical new “Horizon 3” solutions will also be invited, even if they are outside the challenges presented by the NGOs. A series of online “meet-and-greet” sessions will enable solution providers to talk with potential NGO partners. Then innovators and NGOs can jointly apply for seed funding to take their projects to the next stage.
Evaluation: Expert evaluators nominated by the NGOs will choose the projects that could have the most impact and award cash prizes and Innovation Hub assistance.
Festival Presentations Event: Selected submissions will be showcased at the live/hybrid presentations event, attended by fundraising directors and other fundraisers.
Innovation Hub: Winners of Reimagining Fundraising 2022 will have the opportunity to work with an Innovation Hub, using their prize money and NGO funding to help develop and scale their solution. In the Hub, the selected solutions will have access to coaching from the 12 international NGO partners as well as sponsors including Twilio and Blackbaud. The results of in-market testing will be shared with all participants of Reimagining Fundraising through the Hub.
